Justin Bieber Won’t Attend 2021 Grammys Over Perceived Snub
This Sunday night, Justin Bieber won’t be in attendance at the 2021 Grammy Awards, as reported by Page Six, the singer who gained nominations for four awards. However, Bieber opted not to attend the biggest event in the music world. Moreover, he remains pretty frustrated with his song “Changes.” Moreover, the song remains listed in the pop genre rather than R&B.
When Grammy announced Justin’s nominations last November furthermore, he expressed his discontent on Instagram, saying:
I am flattered to be acknowledged and appreciated for my artistry. I am very meticulous and intentional about my music. With that being said, I set out to make an R&B album. ‘Changes’ was and is an R&B album. It is not being acknowledged as an R&B album, which is very strange to me.
Justin Bieber Competes for Multiple Categories
Justin, who won’t be delivering a performance at the event, is competing in the category of Best Pop Solo Performance for “Yummy,” Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for “Intentions,” featuring rapper Quavo, Best Pop Vocal Album, and Best Country Duo/Group Performance Dan + Shay’s “10,000 Hour,” a song Bieber features in. Of note, he’s also up for Best Pop Album, which is at the core of his frustration.
Justin already owns one Grammy to his name in his comprehensive Instagram statement. Furthermore, the singer grew up admiring R&B music, Justin claimed. What’s more, he wanted his music to sound much like the music he so admired. Moreover, he further stated, every aspect of the album existed to sound like an R&B album.
